I know bf babies can go awhile without going poo, but what about a newborn? My baby is a week old and has yet to poo since her 2 merconium diapers a week ago at the hospital. She is happy, sleeps well, & doesn't seem constipated. She has plenty of wet diapers. Is there a point when it's a problem?
Update- we woke up this morning to a full poo diaper. It was darker( and thicker, but not like merconium.
I'm going to call the LC who works up at the breastfeeding clinic at the hospital, today. She has a dr appt tomorrow, for a check up.
